    Ryu Hwayoung, her scandalous real life behavior and her twin should be ignored. She is not the main lead in this excellent drama! Her performance is mediocre at best. The best parts of this great drama are the top stars and good script. It is very clear why it is No. 1 i the ratings after seeing only 4 episodes.

    Most of the characters are connected by fate and karma, The writer allows the viewer to see potential issues before they arise which gives a good feel of the direction and conflicts up ahead. The viewer is not left guessing. But, their are still surprises, passionate post drunk moments, a lot of comedy (girl fight) and lots of drama for Lee Joon. His crying tears at my heart! This is a must watch.
